Musical Monday :: Can't Fight This Feeling

In the fall of 1994 the hubs and I - then simply two good friends - went to an Elton John concert together. He insists it was our first date. I say it wasn't. Well, either way it was amazing and the start of something special. While I could pick any of the songs we heard that night to share today, I figured I'd share something less obvious. On the way home, I believe, we were listening to the radio when the following song came on.



It was so well-timed. Honestly, I'd been crushing on this boy for years. Would never admit it but everyone knew. Everyone. In my mind this song was our first song together even though we didn't start dating until early in the next year. Here are the words if you want to sing along.

Oh I can't fight this feeling any longer
And yet I'm still afraid to let it flow
What started out as friendship,
Has grown stronger
I only wish I had the strength to let it show

I tell myself that I can't hold out forever
I said there is no reason for my fear
'Cause I feel so secure when we're together
You give my life direction
You make everything so clear

And even as I wander
I'm keeping you in sight
You're a candle in the window
On a cold, dark winter's night
And I'm getting closer than I ever thought I might

And I can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what I started fighting for
It's time to bring this ship into the shore
And throw away the oars, forever

'Cause I can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what I started fighting for
And if I have to crawl upon the floor
Come crushing through your door
Baby, I can't fight this feeling anymore

My life has been such a whirlwind since I saw you
I've been running round in circles in my mind
And it always seems that I'm following you, girl
'Cause you take me to the places
That alone I'd never find

And even as I wander
I'm keeping you in sight
You're a candle in the window
On a cold, dark winter's night
And I'm getting closer than I ever thought I might

And I can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what I started fighting for
It's time to bring this ship into the shore
And throw away the oars, forever

'Cause I can't fight this feeling anymore
I've forgotten what I started fighting for
And if I have to crawl upon the floor
Come crashing through your door
Baby, I can't fight this feeling anymore

The first lines alone fit our situation so well. Honestly, it makes me giggle now. I'm so thankful that it has a part in our love story.
